Avignonesi Toscana Grifi emerges as an extraordinary red wine crafted from the harmonious blend of two late-ripening grape varieties, one indigenous to Italy and the other originating from France. This unique fusion seamlessly combines the Sangiovese's vibrant freshness with the robust backbone provided by Cabernet Sauvignon. The Sangiovese grapes thrive in Avignonesi's Montepulciano vineyards, infusing the wine with elegance and spiciness, while the Cabernet Sauvignon vines flourish in both Cortona and Montepulciano, imparting rich tannins and structural integrity. Harvested and fermented together, these grapes facilitate a perfect union.
